Game over in RI.

RI GOP chooses electoral success over ideology.

Great work.

Gives me hope we will hold the Senate.

(my prediction was Chafee 53% Laffey 47%)

It seems like it was over once the polls closed. I don't think Laffey ever passed 48% tonight.

Expect it to tighten very slightly as Cranston comes in.

How will we know?

The results haven't really budged much from 54-46 since only 10% of precincts were in.

Rasmussen   08/23 - 08/23   500 LV   42   44   6   Whitehouse +2.0
Fleming   08/16 - 08/21   401 RV   43   42   15   Chafee +1.0

Clearly, an insurmountable lead.

I never said it was insurmountable. I just feel that Whitehouse is too strong while Chafee is a pushover.

That's how Spector got re-elected (and got my vote).

Now Chafee and Santorum will be able to continue their work together in the new Senate in Jan/07.

I don't think Santorum is looking for a new Chief of Staff.

Will it make you happy that they'll both be out of work in Jan/07?

I'm sure he'll continue to get them from San Francisco.

No, you must be thinking of Barney Frank, the Democrat.

Yeh....because I bet they agree on a  lot of things....

I'm still going out on a limb here and predicting that Tom Vilsack will eventually become the Dem nominee. 

The others--Edwards, Hillary, and Obama, have peaked WAY too early

THE BUCKS ARE GOING TO THE FINAL FOUR!!!

Hey, if Orrin Hatch and Ted Kennedy can work together on legislation, and get it through the Senate, and they have, then anyone can.

And you have every right to be proud.  We came through in the crunch, never mind the predominant party ideology, which I support by the way, but we came through in the name of political expediency and common sense, because we want to keep this RI Senate seat in GOP hands.

Linc Chafee, the man for the times.

Now on to victory in November!!!!!!

I think he was making a joke about how Santorum's current (or was it his past?) Chief of Staff is gay.

Linc Chafee's going to lose -- but so will McCaskill and Webb. This race is going to cost the DSCC a lot of cash and manpower.

This is the end of Jim Webb. Webb can't afford to run a TV campaign and the DSCC can't afford to help him.

Mark my words: Graf will win this race. If you think the bllodbath between the Club for Growth and the NRSC was bad, check out the battle between the NRCC and the 8th's Republican establishment.

This is not at all true. Webb has raised over $2 million since the primary and has major fundraisers coming up. One will be hosted by Stephen King and John Grisham. Mark Warner and Tim Kaine are also both slated to do fundraising for him. Bill Clinton has agreed to a major fundraiser which will probably be in early October. His fundraising has accelerated since the "macaca" incident.  Webb dosen't need to match Allen dollar-for-dollar to win. He just needs to stay competitive in funds, and it looks like he is going to that at the very least.
